    Not far from London, pretty comfortable Airport, but free wi-fi only 90 minutes and you need to reconnect.

    Gatwick airport's own valet parking is great. And you know they havent driven your car 50 miles there and back

    New security lines upstairs in the southern terminal. Got through in 1:30 minutes, quite cool. Also FCC train from London Bridge was 10£/40min

    Be warned. If you are being picked up by car make sure the driver parks in a carpark or you will get a ticket. Pick up is no longer allowed curb side. No signs but on website

    on arrival, no need to follow all other passports and walk to the other side. Follow UK EU passports to the same 'other passport' counters.

    Do take the train (30mins) to get to London unless you want to spend hours on bus. It's more expensive, but it's worth it.

    Very large airport with good variety of shops. However on the International passport control you will have to queue for 15-20 minutes upon arrival.

    Useful Tip in case you need to send an old fashioned fax. The skybreaks desk will do it for a small charge.

    Good service but the customs lines are always too long for non-EU.

    Take note of which terminal you're in. If it's North, a lot an extra 15-20 minutes to get to your gate.

    Gatwick express is unreliable and the staff are homophobic - just heard a member of staff say "he runs like a poof"!

    Arrive early! Improvements that are being made mean that getting through security is taking forever at the moment.

    In the South Terminals departure area, Gatwick put the toilets at the back of the Duty Free Shop. What an incredibly frustrating annoyance.

    You can only smoke outside and even there in designated areas. You need a smoke if you don't want to get suicidal ideas at this place man...

    The bag control system has been greatly improved recently. Each person now gets a corner to unload their tray after the scanning.

    Very Good airport but you need to book a car before coming to this Gatwick because its far away from central London 60km and you need to walk a lot its a huge one✈️

    Free WiFi? Nah, not in this Third World airport. CheapoAir means long Q's, few checkin staff and excess luggage charges.

    They have Gatwick Express. Gatwick Express is the fastest rail link between the airport and central London. Non-stop trains run to and from London Victoria every 15 minutes and take 30 minutes.

    South terminal new security process is smoothest I've ever experienced! Liquids bagging area, boarding pass self-scan and baggage trays with a return conveyor system so there's never a backlog!

    PDF boarding pass on your mobile works at the barriers. Don't believe them if they say you need a paper one.

    Good improvements, friendly staff, appreciate the wifi and plugs at the gate. But forcing people to navigate through a huge duty free shop on their way to departures is abhorrent.

    Great BA Lounge in the North Terminal or try Yotel (a modern hotel) in the South Terminal.
